Keep the dryer and iron home because they have a different electrical current in Europe and unless you have a transformer (or the hotel does) you will not be able to use them. I tend to pack shampoo and lotion (travel size) just in case. Sometimes my hair reacts to shampoo that is different from what I normally use. 3 days!!! Have fun.
Love that you had so many bags of items to give away.

You might not find dryers in every hotel, depends on what sort of places you're staying... but yours, even with the adapter, will likely blow out the fuse and be ruined.
I'd bring travel samples...I doubt you'll find what you use at home.

I'm impressed with your clean out...I need to do the same. Getting excited for you : )

Rochelle@AFamilyofLooneys said...

You are one busy girl my friend. I know I need to do some major cleaning out, but I keep putting it off lol.

I have no advice for European travel ... so I'll leave the advice to the "experts". ;-)

I'm so glad that blogger has finally decided to cooperate with you!

I'm so excited for you ... it's almost time!

Nichol said...

I wouldn't bring the electronics different power source although you could buy the adapter. I would bring travel samples and check while your there to see if they have similar brands. Good luck!!!

EmptyNester said...

Are you even allowed to bring lotions and such with you? Or is that just a carry-on situation?

Now you're making me feel like I need to get busy and clean out the closets. Again. Dang it. LOL

I am not familiar with travel in Europe, sorry. But, I will say this. I use shampoo to wash things out if I need them. I just take it all into the shower with me. Roll it all up in a towel for a few minutes and then hang to dry. Always ready to go the next day.
I can hear the excitement in your voice. I know you are going to have a ball.
Love Vegas...glad you had fun. I found some good denim capris at Kohl's this week.

Sounds like you are getting everything done for your trip and that is so exciting!
I would leave the hair dryer and iron at home - they have them in the hotels plus their plugs/electrical outlets are different - Can't remember if you are going to Germany or not but in Germany they do not even allow irons in the hotel rooms - they will iron your stuff as a service.

I would definately bring shampoos and conditioners - the ones they have in the hotel are not always the best and for some reason whenever I travel to Europe it changes my hair (hard to explain) so bring your own GOOD products and your hair will love you.
Also, DO NOT bring the travel sized ones - shampoo and conditioner and lotions do not weigh enough to make a difference and you will be much happier with quality products for your hair and skin. I always put mine in ziplock bags, and get the air out of the bag in case they leak a little.

Good luck on your medical tests.

Whooo hooo your trip is almost here!

You are an awesome bowler! And leave the hair dryer and iron at home. Don't waste the weight. :)

Karen Mortensen said...

Glad you had fun. Have a wonderful time in Europe.

Alexis AKA MOM said...

FIRST off yummy to the caramel apples!!

I always bring the shampoo but you can always pick some up while your there, since it not very expensive items!

I would call the hotel and see what they have most have iron's and hair dryers, not sure about Europe though. But give them a call or email.

WAY to go on the clothes!!!

YUM room services I think I've had it once lol.

Way to go on bowling!

Amy said...

Okay first you show me that yummy gyro and now the caramel apples.. You sure know how to make a Prego smile.. Yummy.. If I was close to you I would have been right over to help you with those apples..

Yeah on all of the cleaning and finding more tops to use..

Have a great day..

Caroline said...

You sure are busy. Love the apples now I want one :).
Glad you had a good time.
Blogger sure has been messing up lately. :(

Stella said...

If you take shampoo and rinse make sure it is not over 6 oz. The last time I flew a month ago they took mine as it was more than 6oz. However, you could probably take several travel size. This might be more convenient anyway as you could throw the used ones away.

Kerri said...

3 days!! i would leave the dryer and iron at home and maybe take travel size items if u have room if not buy it when u get there to save weight

those apples look soo good

nancygrayce said...

I'm a horrible packer, so I have no advice! Just have fun, fun, fun!!! Can't wait to hear and see pictures!!

Kristin said...

You've been busy! Have a great trip!

Mary said...

I'm so jealous!!! Sounds like you're just about all set to go!
thanks for reminding me about the mammogram...I'm overdue for mine!

Unknown Mami said...

I say don't take the iron.

Deb said...

I have to agree with everyone leave the iron and hairdryer...take your own hair care products...and have fun...

Sandra said...

Love a good drawer cleaning!
I have no suggestions for you as some of us...ahem...have never really travelled...well, except to visit family which doesn't count.
Oh, and i just spotted the "brought these home from Vegas" candy apples...yum!

jennifer said...

I can tell that you are so excited about your upcoming trip and maybe a bit aprehensive as well. I would be too.

I'm going to get my toes done soon. Boy do they need it!

That corgi :) said...

good for you for getting rid of all those bags of things you don't need any more! hope you find the capri pants you are looking for! I'm the worst traveler so can't offer advice on what to bring or not to bring, but it sounds like you got lots of great advice on it from other comments! those apples look delicious!!!

betty

Holli Taylor said...

I say leave the blow dryer...those are standards. Your flat iron and shampoo are a must. Try leaving out an extra pair of shoes...take your jacket on the plane. I am so jealous! Have fun.

secret agent woman said...

I rarely use a hair dryer and never an iron, so I can't speak to that. But I'd skip the shampoo and buy some there if it turns out you need it.

Kristin - The Goat said...

I am allergic to all kinds of fragrances, so I always bring my own shampoos and such. The places we stayed when I last traveled overseas did not have shampoos or lotions for the most part, but did have hairdryers.
